Ashland Electric - Net Metering

June 09, 2023


In 1996, Ashland adopted a net metering program that includes simple interconnection guidelines. Generation and consumption are netted monthly and any excess generation is rolled over to the next month as a kWh credit. Any net excess generation remaining after the March 31 billing cycle every year is paid out at the wholesale rate.
